Gallery: June 16 — Emmenmatt, Lauperswil

This page and the next both concern themselves with a long day I spent hiking through towns downstream from Langnau. I took the train to Emmenmatt to start out.

A house uphill from the Emmenmatt station, with a sort of strange quality, mostly, I think, because of the ruddy, glossy finish of its walls.

A lovely little diverse patch of flowers near the station.

Double eave! I'm not totally sure what the story is here.

Compound bracket eave with a whole lot of stuff stored within, which was surprisingly unusual.

Lean-to, also rather unusual for the area.

This ramp is pretty great because of the way it rises up out of the land and also because you can see clear through the barn.
